Bright and glorious is the sky,
Radiant are the heavens high
Where the golden stars are shining.
All their rays to earth inclining
Beckon us to heav’n above,
Beckon us to heav’n above.
On that holy Christmas night
Through the darkness beamed a light;
All the stars above were paling,
All their luster slowly failing
As the Christmas star drew nigh,
As the Christmas star drew nigh.
As a star, God’s holy Word
Leads us to our King and Lord;
Brightly from its sacred pages
Shall this light throughout the ages
Shine upon our path of life,
Shine upon our path of life.
